Securing your property with Video Door Entry Systems UK
Security is a huge issue these days across the world, including the UK. Domestically, the growth of systems to keep intruders out has been remarkable in recent years. Equally remarkable is the number of security and safety devices available on the market.
For video door entry systems, UK consumers have a wide range of choices, but as with all things, the best service providers have earned their reputation for good reason. At Safe & Secure Shop, we have been in business for many years and have built up a reputation for a reliable and professional service providing solutions tailored to our customers' individual requirements, whether it is trade or DIY installation.
Different properties require different solutions so it is important to choose trusted specialists who can recommend the right products. Flats, apartments, homes of multiple occupancy (HMO), gated mansions and commercial offices all have their own set of unique considerations. There are different video door entry systems for each application and selecting the right one can be crucial to the effectiveness of your security and surveillance systems.
Some of these systems are ideal for multiple occupancies where each property has its own separate locked door and facilities with a communal entrance. In this situation it is extremely useful to be able to see who is calling and the built-in camera viewer offers the tenant this level of security. These video systems are relatively simple to install and make the property more attractive to tenants and buyers for a small capital outlay.
Access control using door entry intercom systems
Door entry intercoms (or audio systems) are a small step down from the video version, as there is just an intercom to speak into. Card and door audio entry systems are installed outside and alongside the front entrance, and often come with a list of the occupants. The property owner or manager keeps the list up to date. However, once installed these systems frequently run with very little maintenance. These door entry telephones are also frequently used in single occupancy residences where the entrance to the property is away from the dwelling, e.g. a gate or a townhouse where the living area is on the first floor.
These systems are also installed where there is a need for commercial security. For example, a security door entry intercom can be installed where access to the premises is only for staff. Specific model types can be installed with a special passcode. For this type of door entry, UK businesses frequently put them to use as a means of controlling access for a large number of staff. Access control codes can also be assigned to individual staff members or shift teams, so that if there are any changes in personnel, codes can also be changed without affecting operations of the larger workforce.
Wider security issues and door access control
Door access control systems typically comprise of an electronic bolt or magnetic lock with a digital keypad or card reader to open the door. These door entry kits and locks can be interlinked to manage multiple doors with central PC-based management software if required. Single door access control keypads and maglocks can be installed by advanced DIY homeowners. Other more sophisticated solutions include a keypad door entry alarm that can be integrated with alarm systems and also monitor usage of specific doors.
